Okay, I know I’m a slacker when it comes to keeping up with my blog, and I have been meaning to do a post about this palette since I bought it last summer. Now that the Naked 2 palette is out (which I happen to have also bought,) I figured it was high time to finally talk about the first Naked palette. So I actually bought the first Naked Palette by Urban Decay last summer, after hearing lots of great reviews, and seeing some pretty fabulous looks with it. At first I was like, “I can’t believe I just spent this much on eye shadows!” but then I told myself that I would use this palette everyday to do my shadow with, since there are SO MANY looks that you can make with it. When I thought of it that way, then buying this collection of twelve shadows was pretty reasonable. I was getting several eye looks in one. Boy was I wrong! The looks are ENDLESS with this! Much more than just a few, or even “several”, there are TONS of eye looks you can make with this! I am in love with all of these eye shadows! Since I bought it last June, I have used it pretty much everyday, (with a few exceptions) and STILL find new looks to do with it.
This palette comes with a flat stiff brush for applying (or I’ve heard it called “packing on”) color to the lid. This brush is great for picking up enough color and “packing” onto the lid over your primer. Most all of these colors will work beautifully on many different skin colors (I’ve used them not only on myself, with an olive/yellow undertone, but on my bffs whose skin is much lighter and pinker than mine). I’ll list the colors pictured in order:
Left to Right- Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal.
You can see that one or two of the colors have some glitter in them, (I don’t know why my camera was so blurry) which I usually don’t like to use, but if you don’t mind cleaning up a little bit around your eyes, then those colors are very wearable. I think Sidecar has the most, and next to that would be Gunmetal, and then Creep. The other two, (Gunmetal and Creep) you can’t really tell as much, so those colors work very well.
Here are just a couple of looks that I have done with this palette. I would be happy to do some more looks with it!
The top look has more of a bronzy, brown look to it, while this one has some gray in it. I’d love to do some video tutorials on a day look, and maybe a night, or going out look.
Yes, I DID buy the Naked 2 palette, which I will most likely do a video review on (hopefully!) so check back for that! Let me know your thoughts on this palette! Have any of you bought it? Do you like it?
